Loonie Stampers Challenge #127

This weeks colors by Char remind me of easter...I struggled to avid making it one...LOL So instead I made a birthday card suitable for a child :) I am not in love with this card but I did enjoy playing with my banner builder dies from Papertrey Ink.

Lets see what the other ladies did this week!

ok...time for bed!

Loonie Stampers Challenge #126

This weeks challenge was selected by yours truly! 
I decided on these colors based on the pretty sparkly chipboard type stuff that my wonderful Daughters picked out for me from Micheal's at Christmas time. I knew for sure that I wanted to use some dies to cut this stuff up....the colors remind of Neapolitan ice cream..LOL

Since the v-day season is coming up I decided to use those colors to do a card with that theme.

Lets go see how the girls did with my colors.
They were all saying over email that it was hard...Sorry girlies!

Loonie Stampers Challenge #125

 This week Wendy decided to shake it up a little bit and gave us a sketch. 
So Fun!!! I also think it is a LSC Consensus that she do sketches more often and we 
shall call her Sketchy bitch (play to the tune of Sexy Bitch)

Love it!
I embossed my card first and then attached some gigantic ric rac that I have been hoarding since the LSC vacation last summer. Isn't that stuff amazing? Anywho then I dug out some PTI dies and made a flower (little DSP, Little felt) Topped it off with a button on top!

Lets see what this sketch looks like in the eyes of my fellow LSC Chicks!

A Sneek Peek

of my website!

As most of you know I work an amazing website designer and her talent always seems to floor me. She surprised me with a new layout for my old website. I was so thrilled and guess what? She based her design off one of the designs of my cards...this one right here.

I cant wait until it is done and I can do all the fine tuning and share it with all of you....but for now I must go so I can get back to work on the ones that make up my paychecks :)

Loonie Stampers Challenge #124

 Welcome back!
Last week I was still suffering some holiday fog and was extremely late with my post, I seem to have things back on track! So I dug right into this weeks color challenge provided by Miss Delaware, Maria!

I am going to start by telling you about the stamp that I used.
My husband, following traditions of the past 14 years, took our Daughters with him while Christmas shopping on....yup, December 24th!! They ended up in Micheal's and my Daughters picked out this beautiful Angels set by INKADINKADO.

So I stamped and cut it out and colored it up with my Prisma pencils. I {heart} Prisma!! (I wonder if the loonies are still tired of hearing me say that?) Now it is hard to tell in the picture but the sentiment is stamped in Enchanted evening with the word Love being stamped in Dark Chocolate! I also used a tiny bit of blue to enhance the appearance of her wings.

I am also glad to say that I figured out a way to take a descent photo with my iPhone since my camera is out of commission at the moment....Can you believe I took this photo when it was dark as midnight outside???

Don't forget to to swing by the Loonie Blogs and see what they have been up to!

Santa stopped at my house

I know Christmas has come and gone but I have been taking vacation from my computer as well. I literally have been doing everything from my iPhone! (Love that damn thing)

Anyways I was very excited to open this present Christmas morning! My hubby actually got me the dishes I told him i wanted ages ago. I now have a complete 8 place setting of this yummy chocolate damask pattern set from stokes. I think I may have to add one more set to make it 12 :)

This picture makes me want to make a card!!

a Late Loonie...

Wow..What a Holiday season. Were you as busy as me? Im Sure EVERYONE was busy. I feel like I was caught be complete surprise this season. so weird!

Anyway here is a glimpse at a neat little project I am working on which happens to fit in the Loonie Challenge for this past Friday "Stitch N Bitch" or something like

A local Radio Personality is getting married and approached me to make her invitations very unique. She wants her entire invite to appear as an old fashion or vintage parcel. Think 1930's romance in cool. this is what i have so far, but I am sure there will be some fine tuning to come.....

Pardon the photos my camera is still broken so these come from my iPhone.

The book itself is going to be about 4-6 pages and every page is going to have little pockets and pull outs to display all the information such as the invite, menu, location, hotel, registry etc....I cant wait to see the book evolve to a finish....and then i have to make 75 of them.. :)

If you have not done so already go visit my girls who were on time with the first challenge after our Christmas break, Sorry ladies, do you forgive me???
